I’ve heard of Elizabeth Lowell and I’ve seen many of her novels when visiting Barnes and Nobles but I’ve never had the chance to read any of her novels until I was given this hardcover novel of her most recent release. Perfect Touch is a heart-racing tale in which a former soldier turned rancher and a beautiful designer race to stop a vicious killer—a battle for survival that threatens to explode in an intense and irresistible passion. The novel begins with the heroine who is an art dealer and owner of her own design studio, Perfect Touch. Sara Medina travels the world to find the ideal artwork for her clients and has a sophisticated comfortable life in San Francisco is light years away from the poverty of her family’s dairy farm. Sara will do whatever it takes to keep her business strong and as a dedicated urban career woman focused on her work, she doesn’t have time or energy for a family or distracting romantic entanglements.

I seem to be on a romantic suspense whim, eh? Well… gotta admit, they’re truly breathtaking. Here’s another of Elizabeth Lowell’s novels, Always Time to Die, which goes very deeply into the subject of family and genealogy.

Genealogist Carly May is hired by elderly Winifred Castillo Simmons to research her Castillo family history. Carly makes the acquaintance of Dan Duran, a man with a haunted past and a mysterious connection to the Quintrell family. Sparks fly between Dan and Carly as the romantic tension heats up along with the suspense, for someone doesn’t want Carly digging into the past. Narrator Maria Tucci adds authenticity to this novel with her expert pronunciation of the Latino surnames, as well as her subtle yet convincing nuances when speaking for the various characters. The intensity of her expression heightens the most suspenseful moments, providing listeners with a quality narrative.

My turn…

Lowell truly researches her subject. Here we have a family historian who brings up the subject of DNA which is central to the plot here. I loved the biology in here, and learning about mtDNA and more about genes. You are literally kept at the edge of your seat, wondering who’s who and what’s going on. Lowell was one of the first authors who got me into suspense, and she shines once more here, totally going out of her way to simultaneously spook us and surprise us. I had NO idea who Josh Quintrell truly was. Did I say I love Lowell? I do, I really do.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
